A memory turned into magical experience in sculpture, video and 2 dimensional drawings.
“black nance is a project based in history and story. For the project, I made a traditional pond boat with a hull shaped of wood, a heavy metal keel and functional rigging that allows the model to sail autonomously. Black Nance was the name of the first Tancook Schooner built by Amos Stevens of Tancook, Nova Scotia. The model I built is based loosely on that boat. The hull was shaped with similar lines as the original but the style of rigging and shape of the keel are different. The black nance I built does not attempt to faithfully replicate the original but the two boats do exist in the same place—the original was the first of its kind and, within my practice, mine is as well.” – Chris Boyne
Acting in cooperation with a larger vision integrating music, theatre, writing, film, visual arts and dance, our galleries provide a space for multidisciplinary visual arts exhibitions. It is our belief that together, the arts champion a dialogue fostering collaboration between artists in all disciplines and stages of their careers and the surrounding and global community at large. The Centre is dedicated to encouraging and promoting the arts though education and arts development, and provides a professional environment for artists to present work in a non-commercial venue. Ross Creek Professional Gallery Our Professional Gallery focuses on contemporary visual art. Our exhibiting artists are regional, national and international. Community Gallery The Community Gallery exhibits work created during our residencies, outreach programs within the community and schools. Additionally, this gallery is often used by our camp programs. For artists who would like to exhibit at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, please click here for information and applications.
